Project Climate Impulse and the first hydrogen flight around the world

Progetto Climate Impulse e il primo volo a idrogeno intorno al mondo

Bertrand Piccard and Raphaël Dinelli unveiled the new project Climate Impulse for the first non-stop, round-the-world journey in a green hydrogen-powered aircraft.

Named ‘Climate Impulse’, this historical flight planned in 2028 aims to be a flagship for climate action, showcasing how efficient solutions can set the world on a sustainable course.

Climate Impulse is in spirit and in practice the heir of the Breitling Orbiter, of Solar Impulse and of its Foundation, dedicated to the identification and promotion of clean and efficient solutions, good for the environment and good for the economy.

The Climate Impulse aircraft is the child of that vision, one that will be the living proof that we can do better with less, carrying that message across the globe in 10 days. The intention is to revolutionise the skies and aviation while making a lasting contribution to the ecological transition.

Piccard intends, similarly to what he did with the Foundation and will continue to do, to spark a global movement, to give hope, showcase solutions and bring pioneer spirit to the forefront of climate action.

Showing other ways of thinking is what has always defined the engineer Raphaël Dinelli and Bertrand Piccard, through their own achievements. Going beyond the obvious is what can and will make climate action a reality, one that federates through the opportunity it represents.

Syensqo (formerly part of Solvay) was the first and main technological partner to team up nearly 20 years ago with the Solar Impulse flight. This time again, Syensqo will put its extensive expertise and innovation power to the adventure by enabling the manufacture of the plane with tailor made materials.
